On the 17th and 20th January 2023 AgriFoRwArdS Cohort 3 students presented their progress since moving to their respective PhD universities following the successful completion of their MSc in Robotics and Autonomous Systems in October 2022. This quarterly review was hosted by Prof Marc Hanheide and split into two sessions to account for the increased number of students in Cohort 3.
The CDT quarterly reviews take place every January, April, July, and October and aim to support and share knowledge across AgriFoRwArdS and broader. It is also a fantastic place for everyone to come together and catch up and share what they have been working on but also new and interesting ideas.
This quarterly review was held via Teams with the next planned review to be held face to face and hosted by the University of East Anglia, which should a fantastic event at a wonderful campus.
The sessions were arranged across two separate mornings in no particular order. They ranged from decision making support systems across to adaptive control of invading plant disease epidemic.
The sessions this quarter were particularly noted for their breadth of scope and research covering whole sectors of the agri-tech domain. These sessions also provide a fantastic opportunity for new Cohort students to see different styles of presentation, different methods for asking and answering questions, as well as be introduced to broader topics being covered by the AgriFoRwArdS CDT. To learn more about the research that is starting to take place by Cohort 3 take a look at their respective profile pages for a full brief.
Overall the reviews were a huge success. A huge thank you to all the students that presented at this review and an even larger thank you to all the supervisors, participants and support team that followed the presentations and asked questions.
